About The Canterbury Tales:

The Canterbury Tales provides a great introduction to the historic cathedral city and its famous literary connection as well as being a hugely entertaining and enjoyable day out for the whole family. Having welcomed more than two million visitors from all over the world, The Canterbury Tales remains one of Kent’s ‘must see’ attractions.

The Canterbury Tales represents an accurate reconstruction of 14th century England, set inside the former St Margaret’s Church, just off the city’s High Street. It gives visitors the opportunity to step back in time and experience the sights, smells and sounds of medieval times. Visitors are invited to join Chaucer and his band of pilgrims as they embark on a journey from The Tabard Inn in London to the shrine of St Thomas Becket in Canterbury Cathedral.
